Elgin Pocket Watch The Gentleman’s Dress Pocket Watch Housed in this 14K Solid Gold Case
Elgin is famous for railroad-grade pocket watches – robust, reliable timepieces that kept American railways safe. During their heyday, Elgin expanded their business to make “gentleman’s pocket watches” – smaller, deeply fashionable pieces representing the peak of Elgin’s technical expertise and craftsmanship.
Elgin manufactured this pristine Gentlemen’s Dress Pocket Watch in 1920, one of just a thousand made that year (most lost to the ravages of time). This all-original Elgin pocket watch is faced with an ornate metal dial, highlighted with custom heat-treated blued steel hands.
It’s powered by the Elgin Grade 452 Model G.M. Wheeler Movement, valued for both its accuracy and beauty. It’s stem wound and set, a convenience required by its most demanding customers. Better yet, it’s housed in an original, matching G.M. Wheeler Model: Elgin/Wadsworth Solid 14K Yellow Gold Case.
It’s an ideal piece for elegant daily carry or as a valued keepsake.
All our treasured timepieces are completely disassembled, expertly cleaned and oiled using the finest quality watch oil and gear grease, and adjusted for accuracy.
Full one year warranty.
